The Far South Coast Dressage Association is holding its championship weekend this Saturday and Sunday at Cobargo Showground.

The club said it has been fortunate to secure the services of four highly qualified judges including a highest achievable A level judge Nell Marshman.

Competitors will be travelling from Mallacoota to Nelligen and Cooma to join Far South Coast riders to compete over the two days.

All spectators are most welcome and entry to the grounds is free.

Saturday afternoon will feature the Freestyle tests – individually created by the competitors to a given set of guidelines and ridden to accompanying music specifically chosen to match the horses’ movement.

Medium level tests will also be ridden – the highest level to be ridden over the weekend.

Sunday’s events will conclude with a Pas De Trios just after lunch.

Three riders from the same family and their lovely ponies will perform together a specially prepared test to music for all for judges.

Jordan, Jemmasen and Jennifer Smith, known as the “Bamborough Butterflies”, should be a very entertaining way to round out the weekend champiosnhip.

Saturday’s events get underway from 9am and run til around 3pm. Gates re-open Sunday at 9.30am with the Pas De Trios finale at approximately 12.30pm.
